Wise Camps Opportunities

New Rocketry Opportunity:

Brendan Williams is a rock star middle school science teacher who lead a successful new rocketry camp this past fall.

He’s holding another intro camp (“3-2-1 Blastoff!”) starting Monday, January 27 for kids in grades 5-8. He’ll then hold a brand new intermediate rocketry camp starting in March 2020! This is a really unique opportunity to be part of the newest generation of rocket scientists! Visit our website for details.
 
Registration is open at www.wisecamps.com for both of those opportunities.
 
Summer 2020:
We also have expanded our Wise Summer Camps to include younger campers! (We were asked by so many parents!) Now we have a “Little Scientists” and a “Little Picassos” camp which will be for students entering grades 1-2 in the fall of 2020. 
 
Most of our other camps are broken into grades 3-5 and grades 6-9. We also have SAT prep camps for kids entering grade 9-11 next year. 
 
We have new cooking camps (“Mini Chefs!”) for grades 3-5, a new programming camp (“Programming Party!”) for grades 6-9, a new sports math camp for 6-9 and all of our past popular camps of course! (Chemistry, Medicine/Biology, Marine Science, Finance, Forensic Science, Art, Cooking/Baking, Math, Model UN, and Engineering!).
 
We offer sibling discounts, camp scholarships and have an early registration promotion.
We are promoting early registration this year more than ever because it helps us see what the needs are for adding camps and staff. For families who register by January 31st we are offering the following:
  • Your camper receives a gold lanyard which earns them VIP status (1st through the lunch line, extra tickets in the Activity Room and a free Wise Camps take home gift the first day of camp! (new this year!)).
  • ALL families who register before Friday, January 31 will be put into a random drawing for a $500 coupon good toward this year’s camps (so you’ll get reimbursed!)!
 
Parents can register at www.wisecamps.org!
